Join the Marquette Law Mentorship Program

The Marquette Law Mentorship Program pairs first-year law students with upper-class mentors to help ease the transition into law school. Mentors and mentees are paired based on academic interests, hometowns, hobbies or other common interests. A couple of formal events will be planned over the semester, but events mainly serve as a gateway to encourage further and more frequent contact between mentors and mentees. The program is designed to create genuine friendships that benefit both mentor and mentee.

If you would like to participate, fill out this short form and await your pairing!

If you have any questions please contact MLM Co-Chairs Wynetta McIntosh or Ashley Rossman.

Marquette Prohibits Motorized Scooter Use On Campus Property

Knowing the City of Milwaukee is piloting dockless scooters, the Marquette University Police Department led a thorough review about the impact of such motorized vehicles on campus safety, which included input from leaders across functions and consultation with Marquette University Student Government. As a result, Marquette University is prohibiting the use of motorized scooters on campus property, effective immediately, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Joel Pogodzinski announced.

Under the new policy, all motorized scooters — including the rentable dockless variety operated by companies such as Lime, Bird and Spin — are banned from use on any campus property, including walkways and sidewalks within the campus. The new policy also applies to other personal motorized vehicles, including but not limited to electric bicycles, electric skateboards, hoverboards, Segways, and mopeds.

MUPD will enforce the new policy. Additionally, MUPD will enforce all city ordinances and traffic laws related to motorized scooter operations, particularly their use on public sidewalks, which is strictly prohibited.
